Chemo 1 (Round 9)

I have to admit that today was the first time in a long time that I was a bit afraid. The scan news was not great and there is no way of glossing it over. What is so weird is that I feel great and people tell me I look great. So what the hell is going on inside me?

My bloodwork was good, the protein in my urine was very normal, my vitals were all good and weight was stable. I was really grateful that Diana and Robyn joined me for this chemo session. Mike was at work :-) The meeting with Dr. Schraeder was fine. We discussed the chemo plans as well as the results of the scans. I will be going back on the Alimta and Avastin combo every three weeks and they will be adding another drug (not chemo) for my bone strengthening. Not that "bone"!!!

I also went for the hip pain injection today after chemo and already feel the relief. All in all, a busy hospital/medical day.

I must pass along my deep gratitude and appreciation for all the continued wonderful support from all of you out there. Without this support the past six years would have been extremely difficult and very lonely. What is it that scares me? Simply put, the permanence of death. But, I'm not planning that for a while!

Carpe Diem.
